Re: NAMSATE AND EAGLE PROJECT ARE DEAD!!!



Rick,

I've been volunteering as an Area Coordinator since 1978 or so. Before that I was a Project Oscar member from 1972.. I've never seen this organization and the support of A/C's as dysfunctional as it is now! The AMSAT Website is a disgrace and hasn't been updated in many months. The on line purchasing of stuff doesn't work. I was one of the volunteers who worked on the 70 CM Prototype Telemetry receiver. I was the guy that put the Excel spreadsheet together to identify, order and track parts...

In any event, from my standpoint, the Area Coordinators haven't had any real support for years. Information out of the organization is dismal! ... So you've FIRED everyone on Eagle.... I should try to follow politics in this organization more closely.... I don't do that.... I think, however that it's time for a change in leadership. When I was one of the individuals working on the 70 cm telemeter receivers, Jim Stafford was the Project Manager. Jim was an excellent PM. What happened????? 

I think sometimes you folks are so enduring to yourselves, you think you have everything in control and don't realize the support and organization is crumbling around you. And the worst of it all.... YOU let happen and didn't do anything to change things.!!

  Luc,

  I am glad you care enough about AMSAT's future to pay attention to events as
  they unfold. It appears that you have misinterpreted recent events, however.
  AMSAT's engineering department is undergoing a reorganization that we hope
  will allow us to better focus on the results our members have been looking
  for and improve cooperation among the development teams. There is nothing
  sinister going on at all.

  AMSAT members will be getting more detailed information through the Journal
  and the engineering mailing lists in the coming days and weeks.

  As usual AMSAT-NA is keeping the crowds unaware and uninformed on AMSAT-BB
  and on purpose...NAMASTE and EAGLE project are from my point of 
  view literally dead! For those who are still believing on a HEO made by
  AMSAT-NA forget it they "HALTED" NAMASTE et fired out the EAGLE 
  team leaders

  Here is some e-mails exchange...

  It seems obvious now that AMSAT-NA projects are collapsing NAMASTE is dead
  and EAGLE PROBABLY WILL BE HALTED TOO?????
  SEE BELOW THE FULL EXCHANGE AND PLEASE READ THE THREADS ON:
  http://amsat.org/pipermail/namaste-dev/2008-July/thread.html<http://amsatorg/pipermail/namaste-dev/2008-July/thread.html>

  Here is an excerpt moving around the "Super duper" AMSAT-NA president on the
  NAMSATE reflector

  > At this time, all group leaders on the Eagle project
  > are relieved of their leadership duties.
